Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary approach to enable the realisation of successful systems. It involves considering the complete problem context and system lifecycle; defining the customer needs and functionality early; codifying the requirements; and performing design synthesis and validation accordingly. This course introduces the fundamental concepts and techniques of systems engineering and demonstrates how they can be applied to solve problems. It covers the key processes for engineering systems from the technical, technical management, agreement and organisation-enabling domains. Participants will learn from practicing certified systems engineering professionals and will have the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the concepts and processes introduced through group discussion, individual assignments and team projects.
